I have a relatively small (16' x 28') in-ground vinyl pool. I used to have a pressure side pool cleaner with an attached bag for debris, but it would always get stuck at the same spot by the stairs, no matter what adjustments I made. So I removed it over a year ago and now I just use a leaf rake and occasionally vacuum. I don't have too many trees dropping debris in the pool.
Is this OK? Are the chemicals getting dispersed enough by the 2 returns alone? Has anyone else out there had success without using a pool cleaner?
